Well, I finally did it. Here it is, my second steaming pile of sketches.
I'm now a Senior in highschool, and I hope you can see improvements from my last sketchbook. I also wanna broaden my horizons, but let me say this, I do mostly cartoon-ish stuff. It's what makes me happy! I can't help it!
Anyway, enough blah. Here's the latest....
Well, there ya go. Please C&C and keep a lookout for more! Thanks a bunch~~~Siobhan^_^

It’s female Kenshin! Very nice, like the anima style. Be careful with body proportions though, the arms of your characters are too short, and the hands are too small on your guys.
Also the young boy in the last pic looks a little too small. Probably ‘cause the heads in anime characters appear a lot bigger than the body, and the boy’s head seems to be quite small. You'll get the hang of it through observation.
I like the first one the most! The color is nice as well as the line quality. I also enjoy it the most because it seems to be drawn in a more original style than the manga stuff. The rest are cool though. I'd like to see more like that first one up here. Post some more!

tempist-Thanks for dropping by! I saw your sketchbook and it's absolutely amazing. As for the hands being to small, that's kind of a curse of mine..my hands are very very small, even for a girl, so most of the people I draw have little hands! Even my bros have small hands..what can ya do? I'll work on that tho. Thanks a bunch for commenting
Artistic Schmidt-Thanks for commenting! And in all honesty, the first pic was drawn from a manga pic! Ain't that wild? I do that sometimes to practice stances that are hard to get..normal positions are easy, whats hard is a good focused stance. Thankyou again for stopping by
Looks like you have a pretty good grasp of your cartoony style , looking good. I like the one with the girl riding the bird/rooster/chocobo/? heh.
Anatomy wise that last post looks much better than the others posted. Nice to see some older stuff too. Keep up the good work. I think concentrating on shading was a great idea!

Berf-Thanks a bunch! It's not often that my cartoonyness gets a good word.
ArtisticSchmidt-Yay my anatomy improves! Thanks for dropping by again. Oh, and the decision for shading came from a crit! That's why I love this site, people say more than just 'that's cool', they help you!

Jin-e looks freaky! rk looks awesome! the pix is a 9.9 out of a 9.9 scale! i love it. the black bg makes the focus go to the character too. thats kinda cool. i am gonna try to get my swords that shiny though, that would be pimp. well i am glad to say i just got back from my football game. coach let me play in the b-team for special teams like punt team, kickoff team, and punt block. the game got ugly, so i got to go in as a defensive end. i tore it up. but, although they had the incredible unrivaled power of... , the attempt to get the lead back.... failed ... but i had alot of fun playing. just wanted to say that on a post, since.. i dont have a notebook yet. well, i am off to bed. keep drawin. if all i have to do is call you to say hi to get you to draw something spactular, then i am callin you tomorrow! later siooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!
